I thought you meant Ellis-Bextor for minute and whilst it’s all terribly sad if it’s true, I can now get on with my morning.

It seems to be her friends posting on Instagram. Nothing yet from her label or management

That's the guy who designed the clutch bag for her remix album and has done some other design stuff for her. He was also asking about urgent blood donations on his story :( God, this is absolutely devastating.

I wonder if these posts should be moved somewhere else, nobody wants poor dear sad old cob crying all over the place in a daily thread

Oh fuck I know that guy seems legit.
Yeah, I don't think he would make this up - weirdly enough one of my best friends went to school with him, he's pretty firmly ensconced in her inner circle these days. I really can't believe this :(

I am absolutely heartbroken. It was amazing to have someone openly trans, openly fuck-you about it and ploughing her own furrow so successfully. What the absolute fuck? She was only 34.

I'm stuck at work and can't read Twitter but a lot of people are saying it has been confirmed by close friends (without saying who they are, which would be normal in the circumstances).

Yeah, enough people that were close to her are posting about it that I don't think it can be false at this point, sadly.

I can't see any tweets but Mixmag are saying it was "a sudden accident" in Athens.

That's 3 then. Three public figures I had never met whose death took me to tears. John Peel, Mark E Smith and now SOPHIE.
